About Access Restrictions to Electronic Resources

Access and use of electronic resources made available by the Becker Medical Library are governed by license agreements between the School of Medicine and publishers or third parties. Several of the electronic resources carry some restriction on their use. Access may be restricted by user location, number of concurrent users, and/or password.

In short, most people experience access limitations based on the network to which their computer is connected. Below is a quick breakdown of what can be accessed from various networks.

EBSCOhost Interface Enhancements

In July 2008, EBSCOhost, which provides the CINAHL (Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature) database for the Becker Library, will release EBSCOhost 2.0. In addition to a cleaner look and feel, searchers will notice the following improvements:

  • Enhanced information about how to properly cite articles in various formats.
  • Quick links to Similar Articles.
  • Limits grouped into two columns on main search page for easier access.
  • Search history will display above results.
  • Results pages let you narrow results by publication type, subject, author or journal
  • The ability to limit results directly from the results page, without having to return to the search page.
  • Previews of PDF documents and other images available directly under article citation information.

EBSCOhost is available through the Becker Library Quick Links menu at the top left of each web page. Currently Becker Library users may test EBSCOhost 2.0 by clicking the "New Features" link at the top right of the EBSCOhost screen, and following the links to "Test Drive" the new interface. It is anticipated that during July 2008, EBSCOhost 2.0 will become the default search screen. For complete information about EBSCOhost 2.0, see the EBSCOhost 2.0 Preview.
